Comments (0)
A February 7, 2012, drunk driving accident in Charlotte, North Carolina (NC). left two men with life-threatening injuries. According to WCNC-TV, the driver of a pickup truck ran a red light at the intersection of Pineville-Matthews Road and Johnston Road and hit a car. Both vehicles than careened into a utility pole.

Both men were taken to the Carolinas Medical Center, and the at-fault was charged with driving while intoxicated.

It should go without saying, but driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is reckless and  wholly irresponsible. Unfortunately, many DWI wrecks indicate that people still throw caution to the wind and get behind the wheel while intoxicated.

The victim in this case should contact a personal injury attorney in North Carolina to discuss his legal options. When serious injuries are involved, a victim may be forced to miss a significant amount of time from work, accrue large amounts of medical bills and suffer a decreased quality of life. These are damages that can be recovered through a personal injury claim.
